TOP Reasons Why Choose IT Outsourcing for Business
With the demand and costs getting higher in today’s software development market, it makes sense to seek alternative ways for launching new IT products faster, better and cheaper. Software outsourcing becomes one of the most effective practices that help many world-class companies to succeed without losing the quality of development. Outsourcing refers to the type of work organization when a business hands over some of its tasks to another company specializing in this type of business model. When we talk about “outsourcing” it can be both a one-time cooperation or a long-term interaction between companies.
A saying by the well-known economist Peter Drucker “do what you do best and outsource the rest” ideally describes the idea of outsourcing. It enables businesses to effectively use the company’s resources, save costs (on hiring, teaching own staff), and create a quality product designed by the most talented and experienced people in the field. When you outsource IT tasks to another company, you have access to the latest software and devices. Had it been you keeping an in-house IT team, you would be the one to provide them with all necessary stuff, and it would definitely multiply the cost. A company focusing on IT will rarely provide you with amateurs whereas your own team might not have the required experience.
Once decided that you need to hire outsourcing team and formulate all requirements of your project, it’s time to understand whether the dedicated team model can fit your needs. Here are 3 types of IT outsourcing models:
Time and Materials
By choosing this model you pay for time and efforts spent by the outsourcing specialist (everyone has a certain hourly rate). The “T&M” model can also include costs of needed resources, like Jira or licenses. It’s one of the most common model used in outsourcing due to its flexibility. Payments are usually made every month based on the amount of working hours. If you hire only a developer, be ready to act as a Project Manager: you will be the one who sets tasks, controls performance and all changes along the way. In case you don’t have time to be fully involved in the project management, hiring a professional PM as a part of an outsourcing team is the most suitable option.
A business owner contacts an outsource company aiming to create a mobile app for his e-shop.
He doesn’t have any clear vision and opts for a “T&M” model because it enables to modify the scope, add features and expand the project in the future.
Outsourcing means an agreement between you and an outsourcing company when your contractor will do a specific scope of work for you. Usually, it’s not one or two tasks, it’s a website/app or e-commerce project development, final check, and maintenance. Having chosen this model, you will more likely communicate with the project manager of the outsourcing IT company.
A company of enthusiasts that provide offline language courses of different levels decide to share and monetize their expertise. They want to build a language learning app, but have no idea of how to do it. So, they search for reliable outsourcing services and ask about cooperation. This helps save money and find the best talents to fulfill the idea.
Advantages of Outsourcing
When you choose outsourcing model, you just drop all the duties to outsource project manager and simply give instructions. PM evaluates the task, agrees upon deadlines and price, that’s it. No more troubles: you just go ahead with your to-do list, as an outsourcing team is already working on your project. Now its completion in time is PM’s business.
Deadlines have always been crucial. But timing doesn’t bother you anymore, as an outsourcing company deals with it now, searching for solutions (if not just correction of the task or new deadlines appear), these are the following:
You may not even be aware of a problem, as it will not affect the outcome, if professionals in the outsourcing company perform well. By outsourcing IT tasks, you get combined skills and knowledge. In most cases you pay less than if you hire a full staff of in-house IT professionals.
When Hiring an Outsourcing Team Makes Sense
If IT is not a priority of your business, you should consider outsourcing. Hiring an outsourcing team is especially reasonable when:
